The nostalgic muse to Chinese people worldwide is returning to Sotheby's! This single lot, online only auction contains the earliest comic cover artwork in existence, “Old Master Q – Rock'n Roll”. This work by Alphonso Wong was published in 1964 as the cover for the second issue of Old Master Q. This online only auction is open for bidding from August 1 – 10 and the work is now on view in Sotheby’s SI2 Gallery.
In addition to this online only auction, from August 10 to 25, the “Old Master Q 2.0” selling exhibition will be on view at Sotheby’s SI2 Gallery with original works from Alphonso Wong and his son Professor Joseph Wong. The first Old Master Q exhibition in 2014 was met with overwhelming enthusiasm with every work selling within days of opening. Four years later, we expect similar demand and excitement as this will be the final public exhibition for Alphonso Wong’s original drawings and the last opportunity to acquire them direct from his estate publicly. The exhibition includes original comic drawings by Alphonso Wong, as well as his son Professor Joseph Wong Chak’s “Implication” a series of acrylic paintings, paying homage to Alphonso.
